Hi Rob, liquid does come out of the prosciutto and carrots as they bake - making the glaze you see at the bottom of the tray. The DH team

hi, just wondering about the picture.  the bottom of the tray is completely covered with a brown substance.  from the list of ingredients the only one that comes close is maple syrup.  being that only 2 tablespoons are used i would imagine most of it would have evaporated in the oven leaving the carrots my drier than pictured. so where exactly does this visual bounty of sauce come from?
